We made it folks. Yesterday was the last Sunday without regular season football for a long time, and I can’t wait to get this season started. I’m just so excited for what we have in store for you this year. I could also be excited from eating copious amounts of Guinness (part of an essential and balanced meal). But even if it’s a combination of the two, it matters not, for football, and Fantasy Football is back. Follow me after the jump to see what we are cooking for you this year at Razzball HQ. Hint: It’s not edible. I mean, you can eat your computer if you want, but I would recommend unplugging it first. And probably adding some salt…

New to Daily Fantasy Football? I am too! I’m trying out this new free FanDuel’s contest, where half the league is guaranteed to win. If you want, you can join up with me! (Played FanDuel before? You can build a team for $5 for a chance of $100,000, part of a one million dollar prize pool!)
 

Sunday

We’re continuing a trend from last season of hosting a live gameday thread on Sunday for the early games, the afternoon games, and, of course, what is tacitly known as the premier match-up of the week, NBC’s Sunday Night Football game. Which is sometimes on Thursday. And Saturday. And was on Tuesday that one time. Who knew these sorts of things were allowed? Not I. Sunday Night Football on Thursday… makes total sense. Regardless, be sure to drop by, hang out with your boy (man) Jay, and try really hard for that restraining order.

 

Monday

You’ll get your normal recap of all the Sunday games, with my fresh hot takes, which actually makes it sound delicious. Almost sounds like cake to be honest. Now I want some cake.

 

Tuesday

The Monday Night Football recap will, of course, be offered to you as good tidings, and then we’ll have one of our longtime contributors, Ralph, go over the waiver wire, giving you his take on who you should be grabbing. (Protip: No physical grabbing, as this is most likely illegal. Figurative grabbing could also be illegal, but that’s only if you have telekinesis. I have no clue what any of this means.)

I’m also proud to introduce the return of Jennifer who will be bringing you her take on who are the buys and sells for the week.

Stan, who’s been talking some sleepers this preseason will be continuing the Razzball tradition of Bear or Bull, a series about animals. Well, okay, not just animals, but also football players. And whether or not they are animals. Don’t worry, it’ll make sense.

 

Wednesday

Your favorite specimen blessed by the Elder Gods (his words, not mine), Tehol will stop by and write about something. He says it’ll be about his Disgraces and Delights, a series made popular by ranking Tyrod Taylor as the number two overall player this season, but honestly, I have no idea what it’s going to be about. If it’s anything like baseball, just expect a lot of Evan Longoria b*tching, and Domonic Brown’s name just copy and pasted all over the place.

Zach will be helping you with your Daily Fantasy, but my suggestion is to just add more porn. It really helps the fantasy aspect of it. Though, I would probably rename it to Hourly Fantasy, if you know what I mean… yeah. You know what I mean. I’m winking right now. You can’t see it, but just trust me. I’m winking.

Malamoney returns with the popular Who Are They? series, discussing players that I guess are unknown to all of us… basically they are super spies that are hidden amongst us, using a computer surveillance system to track everything that we do. Are they good? Are they bad? Time will only tell. I may have just described the plot of Person of Interest

Max will end the day discussing the week’s biggest newstory. Whatever it is. I’m assuming with the way the preseason has gone, we should expect content focused only on Tom Brady’s balls and Robert Griffin’s inability to escape from the District.

 

Thursday

This day will be rankings day, because, SPOILER ALERT, our weekly rankings will be released. We’ll also have another longtime contributor, Kevin, bring his IDP expertise in the form of rankings and commentary. I don’t DP, but I certainly watch other people do it. Wait, there’s gotta be a better way to say that.

When Smokey remembers (who knows what happens inside such a large fog cloud), he’ll be providing you with a player spotlight, giving you his take on the situation. I always like situational takes, but I guess it depends on the situation. Wordplay is hot. Call me, ladies.

Rounding out the day, before the Thursday Night Football live gameday post, will be an addition from the Baseball side of Razz, Lance. He’ll be creating an Injury Report just for you. Aren’t you special? You are. But only if you think we’re special. Quid pro quo and what not. I don’t know what that means, but I heard it once and now I just use it all the time.

 

Friday

After the Thursday Night Football notes, assuming that I survived Jim Nantz, Jack, will go over everything RCL. You know, the Razzball Commentator Leagues? The ones with prizes… you seriously don’t know? Well, believe it or not, you can still join up!

Waterloo will be returning and he’ll be going over streamer options, focusing on the QB, DST, and K position. I wanted to work in a stream metaphor here with his name, but I’ll just talk about doing it. Because I’m so meta.

Malamoney, pulling a double shift, will bring back his Stats Machine, giving you in-depth analysis on players using math. You should definitely listen to him, seeing as how when explaining his methodology, Mala also had to give me a math lesson. So it has to be for real. All eight of it. See? That lesson is totally paying off…

 

Saturday

Finishing up the football week, Tehol is back to go over your starts and sits for Sunday’s games. I prefer the sits because I like sitting. It would seem to be my most natural position, well, next to lying down and napping. Which would seem to be my life story.

 

You ready? Football’s back folks…

    Not crazy about my receivers A few others in my 10 team started doing their homework and got me a bit sideways durring the draft.

    AJ Green
    Fitzgerald
    Edelman
    Eddie Royal
    Andre Johnson

    T/E Olson

    RB Lacy Murray Ellington Spiller

    Should I try and move a RB for a better option at WR?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @wjessereid: I think you’re okay here. I’d hold and start Ellington at the flex instead of a WR.

  2. Aaron says:

    Jay…
    I’m in a standard 12 team non ppr lg..

    Qb- luck
    Rb- gore
    Rb- Ellington
    Wr- Julio jones
    Wr- Hopkins
    Wr- Vincent Jackson
    Te- ertz
    Def- Seattle
    K- Bailey

    I have on my bench Eddie royal, Ryan Mathews, Blount, and hillman.

    What do you think???

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Aaron: It’s okay, but not too crazy about the WR group. I feel like there was a better RB after getting Jones… unless you went Luck in the second round. That feels high.

  3. Ron D. says:
    (link)

    would u drop David Johnson for Christine Michael as a speculative add? Johnson is closer to PT but i dont trust any of the backs in Dallas.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Ron D.: I’d take a look at Michael for Johnson, sure.

  4. Randy says:
    (link)

    How would you rank these WRs in a standard league in terms of end of the bench “wait and sees” based on upside, etc? Brian Quick, Stevie Johnson, Brandon Coleman, Rueben Randle, Lockett, Dorsett, and Green-Beckham? Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Randy: On upside? Coleman, Beckham, Johnson, Randle, Dorsett Quick, Lockett.

    And who’s a better keep, Sankey or Bush? Or drop both….best available on WW is Micheal, West, FJax
    Thanks bro!!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @MadMax210: Jones unless your WR depth is shaky. I’d hold right now on the second question.

    Who should I drop for a kicker?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @6ix God: Probably Hurns or Green Beckam. I’d personally drop Hurns.

      @tom: Not too crazy about your running backs, but I like your depth here, and it should offset.

    Hey Jay, thanks for the preview. It’s going to be a good season.

    How early would you consider drafting the upper tier quarterbacks in 2 QB leagues?
    Do Rogers and Luck become 1st rounders? What about Wilson/Manning/Breeze: 2nd? 3rd?

    Thanks

  11. Nick says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay, in standard scoring non-ppr league, do you go with Randle, Charles Johnson, Wheaton or Sankey at flex? Have Ty, A Cooper & Garcon as starting WRs & D Murray/AP as starting RBs

    Thanks

    • Nick says:
      (link)

      @Nick: & thats Joseph Randle btw

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Nick: Maybe Wheaton, but double check on Thursday when my Week 1 rankings come out.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Junior: I think it’s a pretty good team, solid running backs, good receivers. You don’t need Palmer or Eifert, so drop them for depth when you need it.

      • Junior says:
        (link)

        @Jay:
        Would you pick up any of those players On The W.W ? If yes which one would u drop from My team

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Junior: Is that Andre Ellington? He has to be picked up. Probably Royal too.

    feeling pretty good at the moment, but always looking to improve…12 tm PPR/3 yr keep 3. 1 QB/2 RB/2 WR/1 TE/2 FLEX. bit soft at WR but i think macli’s in for a big year. thoughts?

    QB: ryan/roethlisberger
    RB: lev bell/lamar miller/spiller/sproles
    WR: julio/maclin/devante parker/roddy white/eddiy royal/mike wallace
    TE: kelce/ertz
    DEF/ST: buffalo
    K: hauschka (sea)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @blounts & fortes: I think you’re okay at WR, but I’m not sure what Ertz or Ben are doing on your team. I think you could have drafted better depth if you skipped those guys. Love the Royal pickup though. I think he could make some waves in this format.

      • blounts & fortes says:
        (link)

        @Jay: cheers, appriciate it..i agree on ertz just more of an insurance policy for kelce as decent TE options seems to be pretty thin on the WW. big ben was more of an insurance/trade bait. hoping to flip him sooner than later fo sho

  14. Fabuloso10 says:
    (link)

    Which side of this trade offer?

    Aj green & Melvin Gordon or Arian foster & Keenen Allen?

    12 team 1/2 ppr

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Fabuloso10: Allen side slightly. Very close.

      • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
        (link)

        @Jay: interesting, i’d have thought this was an easy green side by rankings.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: I like the fact that Foster is coming back sooner than later. Despite being high on Gordon, I think Foster makes up for the difference between Allen and Green, which might be closer than some think.

  15. Jerry says:
    (link)

    Hey, Jay! Would you drop either Fred Jax or David Johnson for Gates? I have Health Miller, but think Gates will be solid when he comes back. My other bench players are Cutler, Woodhead, Eddie Royal, Chris Ivory, and Steve Smith. Thanks for the help!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Jerry: Fred Jackson for Gates is fine.

  16. Ppr says:
